View Full Version : New build & Wireless keyboard/mouse question
May 31st, 2012, 01:49 PM
Building a new pc and bought a wireless keyboard mouse combo for it. The wireless reciever for the keyboard and mouse is USB. When I put the PC together and boot it up for the first time to install windows will it recognize the wireless keyboard/mouse or do I need to get a wired keyboard/mouse for the initial setup?

In my experiences it's been hit/miss, but mostly miss. Infact even some wired peripherals have issues, like the Corsair M60/M90 for example. Just make sure you don't use the USB3 port because that most likely won't work until you get those drivers loaded.

I think I ran into the same issue when I built my new computer a few months back. Wireless didn't work on the initial bootup. It had to be a wired system. Once the OS was fully installed and running, the wireless gear could be installed and recognized.

If you turn on USB support in BIOS you shouldn't have these issues.

On the newer motherboards, a wireless USB mouse/keyboard is normally not a problem.
